Celtic supporters have been reacting to comments from an old foe as the club continue to fall behind their main rivals in the race for the Scottish Premiership title.

The club are crashing out of Europe and remain 11 points off the Premiership summit heading into the weekend, threatening their chances of securing a historic 10th successive triumph.

Former Ibrox chairman Dave King recently suggested that his club is on the brink of dominating Scottish football again.

He has picked his moment well, with Celtic in turmoil at the moment and facing a very uncertain campaign.

King clearly believes that his club’s time has come, as Celtic under Neil Lennon, reeling from a series of bad results and negative publicity, continue to flounder.

His words have infuriated the Celtic supporters – though their anger is not directed at King, but at their own board of directors.

And they believe it’s way past due to shut him up.

Celtic fans echoed these sentiments on social media.

The sight of King in such jubilant form is a tough one for Celtic fans to swallow; they will be hoping that it’s just as tough on their own directors.

In another time, King might be said to be playing with fire by openly provoking the Celtic hierarchy in this way, but the club seems in a much weaker position than it did when Brendan Rodgers came in, and the Ibrox operation was much more self-assured.

It will take something big from Celtic to make King eat his words – the question is, do they still have it in them?
